    I have a Gateway Windows XP. Whenever I try installing VMware
    on it I get an error message. It seems that I need Windows Vista
    or Windows 7 to get it to run.

    Can anyone tell me if there is any Virtual Machine version that will
    work on my PC?

    I am using Internet Explorer and would like to know of a good way
    that will clean my pc of flash cookies.

    I would be grateful for any help please.

    When I try to use VMware Player, I get this message:Error : Vmware Player can not be installed on this computer. Vmware Player requires features that are not present on your CPU...

    I will try this VirtualBox and hope that it works.
    Thanks.

    try getting an older version of VMWare, the newer versions requires current CPU.

    The oldest version that I could find displayed the same message when I tried to
    run it. Could you supply a link to an older version that should work?

    Thanks for the link Doom.

    It is ready to run on my pc, but not it asks me for a serial number. A serial number was
    never emailed to me, so I am wondering how to get one now. Do I need to pay for it?
